Where did it wander? It’s too easy to let our mind stray into negative places. Often, we commiserate over our struggles, bad relationships, and heartache. This inevitably deteriorates our emotional state.Cooking is a prime time when your mind may go into a trance.The repetitive actions and monotonous aura created when cooking the same typical meal, sends our mind into a spiral of grudging and often hypothetical thoughts. The meal gets cooked, but you can’t really remember cooking it. Your loved ones are distant and inconsiderate, not appreciating the meal you have produced. Sound familiar? This book will teach you to use that time in the kitchen to shift your mind into a positive state, as well as creating a delicious, fulfilling meal you can be proud of.
